Travel League ends with fight for second

Though Glen Lakes Golf and Country Club wrapped up first place in the Ladies Tri-County Travel League weeks ago, Citrus Hills and the Plantation Inn and Golf Resort head into today's season-ending golf match still battling for second. Citrus Hills Plantation 11 to 10 in total points, after earning one point Wednesday on its home course. Seville and Connell Lake are also not out of the race, with 8.5 and 7 points, respectively, but an upset would be required for either squad to move into second place.

Glen Lakes, host of today's match, won Wednesday with 270 strokes to Seville's 281. Connell Lake finished third at 283 and Citrus Hills fourth at 285. By failing to place in the top four Wednesday, Plantation stayed at 10 points for the season.

Four points are given for first place, three for second, two for third, and one for fourth.

Today's 18-hole season finale, featuring 56 golfers from seven clubs, has a 9 a.m. shotgun start.
